A member of a family of lever-based crossbow spanning tools known as gaffles, this crossbow spanning mechanism was manufactured entirely from steel and used for both civilian (e.g. hunting) and military crossbows. It became particularly popular throughout Europe after the spread of crossbows equipped with composite bows and steel bows, during the 14th-16th century. The goat's foot lever used a pair of hooked implements to draw and span the crossbow's bowstring, while a pair of curved rails that are part of the lever slid against two steel pegs jutting out of the sides of the crossbow's tiller. The curved rail implements of the lever provided a smooth spanning motion for the mechanism, and minimised the risk of the user injuring themselves while spanning the crossbow's bowstring by slowly pulling the lever.
A later relative of the goat's foot lever was the gaffe lever, manufactured mostly from wood and used primarily for early modern era civilian crossbows (e.g. hunting crossbows). The main mechanical difference between the two is the pulling motion used for the goat's foot lever and the pushing motion used for the gaffe lever.
The detrimental effect of secondary musculo-skeletal deformity on motor function is mainly due to the compromised function of the normal lever arm. Deformed bones, stiff joints and foot deformities all affect the ability of the skeleton to adequately respond to forces generated by muscle activity. Furthermore, the compromised lever arm prevents adequate transfer of forces and torques arising from the ground reaction force (GRF).
During walking, the GRF generates moments around the lower limb joints. The direction of such a moment around a joint depends on the position of the GRF vector in relation to the joint. For example, if the GRF vector is anterior to the knee joint, it will generate an extensor moment. This is often the case in plantarflexor tightness causing forefoot loading (toe-walking). This causes the GRF to displace forward, generating an excessive knee extensor moment and to cause knee hyperextension (Fig. 2). The magnitude of the moment generated around a joint by the GRF depends on the magnitude of the force vector and its distance from the joint. This follows the formula M = F D discussed above. An example of this concept can be seen in patients with severe crouch gait. As a result of the increased knee flexion, the GRF vector is posterior to the knee joint by a significant distance, causing an increased flexor moment at the knee. Patients often lean their trunk forward to displace the centre of gravity and the GRF anteriorly, thus reducing the flexor moment.
Increased femoral anteversion is associated with internal hip rotation during gait in children with CP. It is probable that femoral anteversion is not the only cause of internal hip rotation, as distal rotational deviations and abnormal muscle activity are also known to contribute to this problem. From the biomechanical point of view, however, it is evident that increased femoral anteversion compromises the lever arm of the hip abductors as the projection of the femoral neck length in the frontal (coronal) plane is shortened. Internal hip rotation may, therefore, represent a compensation to bring the full femoral neck length to the frontal plane and increase the lever arm of the abductors. Multiple clinical studies have shown that surgical correction of the femoral anteversion through derotation osteotomy can correct the internal hip rotation during gait in the short- to mid-term. However, there is a risk of recurrence in the long-term, which indicates that factors other than increased femoral anteversion play a role in this problem.
Internal hip rotation during gait also affects the loading of the knee and the foot. As the whole limb is internally rotated, the projection of the lever arm of forces acting in the sagittal plane is shortened. For example, the internally rotated foot will represent a poor lever arm during push-off, as its projected length in the sagittal plane is shortened.
Increased femoral anteversion and external tibial torsion often co-exist. This gives the appearance of valgus collapse at the knee. This appearance is usually due to the torsional effect of these deformities in combination with increased flexion at the knee, although true knee valgus can co-exist. Adequate correction of the torsional deformities together with the correction of any joint contractures and foot deformities can restore the lever arm and improve gait.
The most common foot deformity in young ambulant children with CP is dynamic equinus. This often progresses to fixed equinus and a secondary coronal plane foot deformity follows as the calcaneum is driven into varus or valgus by the tight plantarflexors. The coronal plane deformity can take the form of equino-varus, which is more common in unilateral CP, or equino-(plano)-valgus, which is more common in bilateral CP. Muscle imbalance, abnormal loading patterns, rotational gait deviations and intrinsic anatomical characteristics probably play a role in the development of these deformities. Internal rotation of the whole limb, weakness of the peronei and spasticity of the tibialis posterior are often associated with the equino-varus pattern. In equino-valgus deformity, the calcaneum is primarily driven into valgus by the tight plantarflexors. The everted position of the subtalar joint allows flexibility in the midfoot joints, which collapse and drive the forefoot in abduction. This is often described as a midfoot break.
Since humans have limited strength, clever people have built machines that allow feats not previously possible. One of the simplest (and most likely the first) machine is the lever. I'm sure you discovered the magic of the lever as a youngster when you played on the teeter-totter. Somehow, little sister is able to counter the weight of big brother by careful positioning on the apparatus. This may seem very intuitive, but still, it is a device that needed to be invented. Applications of the lever can be found all around your household.
A lever consists of a rigid bar that is able to pivot at one point. This point of rotation is known as the fulcrum. A force is applied at some point away from the fulcrum (typically called the effort). This force initiates a tendency to rotate the bar about the fulcrum. The idea is to provide another force to lift or move some object (typically called the load). Consider the animation below. In order to lift the weight on the left (the load) a downward effort force is required on the right side of the lever. Common sense tells you that the amount of effort force required to raise the load depends on where the force is applied. I'm sure you are aware that the task will be easiest if the effort force is applied as far from the fulcrum as possible.
Let's say the load (above) is 200 pounds and you need to lift it 1 foot off the ground. This would require 200 * 1 = 200 foot-pounds of work (in the absence of friction). By using a lever, you can lift it with a much smaller force ... depending on where the effort force is applied. The fact that you can lift something heavy with a small force is the key to any simple machine. Most simple machines (like the lever) provides you with a mechanical advantage (a force multiplier = load force/effort force). However, do not think for a second that a simple machine is somehow violating the laws of energy conservation. The amount of energy you get out is exactly equal to the energy you put in. That is, since energy can not be created or destroyed, you will always find:
The key, therefore, is to trade force for distance. You can lift the 200 pound load a short distance (1 foot upward) by exerting a smaller force over a larger distance. However, no matter where you apply the effort force it will take 200 foot-pounds of work.
It should now be obvious that the distance the effort (and load) is from the fulcrum becomes an important factor related to the lever. The farther the effort force is applied from the pivot, the easier it is to produce rotation. These factors are incorporated in a term called torque. You probably already had a feeling that torque dealt with the turning effect of a force.
The concept of any simple machine is to accomplish a task by applying a smaller force over a greater distance. Consider the example shown below. Suppose you have to lift a 60 pound object a vertical distance of 1 foot. This requires 60 foot-pounds of work. You may not be capable of lifting 60 pounds (or get a sore back trying). However, a lever lets you lift the object with a much smaller force. Consider the drawing below where the 60 pound load is lifted a vertical distance of 1 foot (shown in pink next to the load). To lift the weight, you could apply a force of 12 pounds over a distance of 5 feet to lift the object ... or a force of 15 pounds over a distance of 4 feet ... etc. This gives you a mechanical advantage because you are exerting a force less than 60 pounds.. It is calculated as the ratio of the output force to the input force. If it takes 12 pounds to lift a 60 pound load, the mechanical advantage is 5 (60/12 = 5) ... if it takes 15 pounds to lift a 60 pound load, the mechanical advantage is 4. In all cases, you are doing the same amount of work. In the image below a force of 10 pounds must be exerted over a distance of 6 feet to produce 60 foot-pounds of work.
Now let's analyze the same lever from the standpoint of torque. Assume the distance between (red) dots along the lever represents 2 feet. The 60 pound load rests 2 feet from the fulcrum, producing a counter-clockwise torque of 120 foot - pounds around the pivot point. A 10 pound force exerted 12 feet from the fulcrum will produce the same amount of clockwise torque ... enough to produce rotation. The ratio of input lever arm to the output lever arm will yield the mechanical advantage of 12/2 = 6. Thus, it is possible to estimate the mechanical advantage from direct observation. If the input lever arm is 6 times the length of the output lever arm, the system gives a mechanical advantage of 6, meaning that for every pound you push on the lever, you can lift 6 pounds of load. 59ce067264
